Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen believes Chelsea are this season's Premier League title favourites.

Owen wrote for Sportlobster.com: "Chelsea are my favourites to win the league, irrespective of transfer activity. The return of Jose Mourinho has transformed the atmosphere at Stamford Bridge. Mourinho has never lost at home in the Premier League and the 'Special One' thoroughly deserves his self-appointed title."
